From WWD, comes word that Jonathan will also be featured in the Spring ad campaign for Versace.
Donatella Versace certainly worked hard while she was in New York last week. After giving a keynote speech at the WWD/DNR CEO Summit and hosting a private dinner for Allure editor in chief Linda Wells, the fashion house’s creative director started shooting Versace’s spring ad campaigns on Friday. While the company did not confirm any information about the campaigns, sources said it has tapped a similar cast of characters to those featured in its fall ads. Mario Testino, who shot Versace’s fall campaign and recent ads with Halle Berry and Madonna, photographed the men’s ads in a Manhattan studio on Friday with actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers and a female model in a relatively straightforward (for Versace) style. Meyers also modeled clothes and accessories for the fall campaign. Meanwhile, the women’s ads will feature many of the same supermodels as the fall ones, which included Kate Moss, Christy Turlington, Carolyn Murphy, Angela Lindvall and Daria Werbowy. — Stephanie D.

Jonathan also attended a party last Thursday at the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York City thrown by Donatella Versace celebrating Allure magazine editor in chief Linda Wells’ new book, “Allure: Confessions of a Beauty Editor.” Thanks to Shelia for the links.
A few images from the dinner party are now in the Gallery.
